We've been diligently doing our spelling in book club each day. This week we're learning about three different spellings for the long u sound. By learning these patterns, we can predict the most common spellings for the words we write. Long u is spelled u-consonant-e when u is in the initial or medial position of a one syllable base word or in the final syllable of a longer word, as in mute and reuse. Long u is spelled u at the end of a syllable in a multisyllabic word, as in music. Long u is spelled ue in the final position, as in true and rescue. It's a lot of work, but our spelling is improving!
